Jacob and Jerod Smith both released the same top ten Wednesday.
The twin duo attend Loomis Chaffee High School in Windsor, Connecticut, which is the same school Alabama’s 2023 offensive lineman signee, Olaus Alinen, attended. Both prospects garner a four-star rating on most recruiting sites.
Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Penn State and Texas were included in Jacob and Jerod’s top ten.

The Crimson Tide offered the pair in June. The duo has visited Alabama three times since last spring. The Tide last got them on campus in September for a game, and Jacob told Touchdown Alabama the visit was ‘fire.’
“It was fire like all of them,” Jacob said. “This was our third time. Walk of champions was fire. We were right above it as they came in…They are a dominant defense in the SEC. I could see myself playing in something like it. They have a dominant defense and basically can get people developed to play at the next level.”
Jacob is listed at 6-foot-5 and approximately 225 pounds. He is being recruited as an edge rusher. He possesses the frame of a future outside linebacker in Alabama’s defensive scheme.
Jerod Smith is projected to be an interior defensive lineman at 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds. He had 10 sacks, 25 tackles for loss, five pass break ups and 40 total tackles through nine games during the 2022 football season.
